DIRECTIONS

  • This can be done both in the oven or on the grill. My BH and I prefer it on the grill.
  • Preheat oven to 350º (if using oven).
  • Rub fish inside and out with salt. Set aside.
  • Sauté onion and celery in 2 tablespoons butter until soft. Add bacon, bread crumbs, egg, shrimp, salt & pepper; mix well.
  • Stuff fish; close with turkey thread, turkey picks, or toothpicks. Place in baking pan and brush with 2 tablespoons melted butter. Bake 40 minutes.
  • If using the grill, I still recommend brushing with butter, and grill 20-25 minutes turning about 4 times as not to break the fish up. Remove picks and enjoy!
